    ‘Fall Creek’

     

    This shows a water hole near Fall creek, a place young people are not allowed to go there without being welcomed or given permission, The ‘Willy Willy’, dust devils, are seen from there, which the Aboriginal people believe represent spirit forms from the Dreaming.

     

    Madiigan is a community elder and a strong Law and Culture woman. She paints for the Warmun community, which she helped establish in 1998. This community is notable for the use of natural pigments in their work and Madigan was amongst the first Warmun artists to combine natural earth pigments to achieve a range of colours - the true colours of the outback.
